Robert Cachini's wonderfully hand carved cottonwood and hand painted "Butterfly
Maiden" tablita katsina stands at about 12 1/2" tall and about 4 1/8" wide, measurements include base. A cut out butterfly design is incorporated into the traditional tablita headdress, as well as tiny painted tadpoles and dragonflies. A small corn maiden is tucked away within Butterfly Maiden's shawl. They emerge from a pretty blossoming flower. The maiden's hair is beautifully incised. We love the vibrant acrylic paints Robert chose, so colorful!
